New student orientations serve an important role in introducing you to campus and the town, showing you how to sign up for classes, providing you with valuable informational resources, and offering you some diversions and opportunities for meeting other incoming students. You may have also gotten an hour or two on study skills, money management, and the important issue of diversity and justice.

This course is not intended as a continuation of your orientation to campus and college life. Instead, this course is intended to fill a gap in knowledge and skill development that goes beyond any course you might take, any concentration you might declare, or any vocation or career you decide to pursue. In short, this course aims to develop the knowledge and skills you may find useful for managing your studies and intelligence, your social connections, and more generally for pursuing valued goals despite the inherent distractions associated with college and life in general.

If you are interested in learning about yourself and others (both the good and the less good), growing, giving help and asking for help, and working hard and enjoying effort, this course may be of interest to you. If you’re more interested in just earning a good grade and doing the minimal work to earn that grade, then this is not the course for you.
